Happy 4th Birthday, Evelyn!!
Wolf Baillie's family was so generous to let us come over for a pumpkin party today! We carved and painted spooky jack-o-lanterns with the help of several helpful chaperones (Thanks again to Jennifer K, Jess B, Betina, Mandy, Lizanne, Laura, Nana, Sarah, Eliza, Jecca and Aga!). We got to work with a variety of tools to scoop out the inside pulp/seeds and create a face. Like Cannon mentions below, one fun part was hitting a metal stencil with a rubber mallet to create eyes, mouths, and noses.
Palmer: I liked carving the pumpkin with Fletcher's family.
Cannon: I liked to hit the holes in with Maren's mom. And I liked mommy's help.
Oliver: I liked carving with my mommy.
Wolf B: I liked taking all the shapes out of my pumpkin.
We mentioned the pulp on the inside - how we had to scrape it out.
Grace: I even helped, with my hands.
Palmer: (It's) the seeds to grow other pumpkins.
